Partners in Prevention: Sorority and Fratenity Life
Sexual violence is a serious community health issue that requires a community-wide response. As part of ongoing efforts to prevent violence in our community, Sorority and Fraternity Life and Sexual Assault Prevention & Education Center (SAPEC) have partnered to provide educational programming to sorority and fraternity chapters. This partnership includes bystander workshops with chapter and council officers at leadership retreats, consent trainings with new/associate members, specially-tailored trainings for chapters, CARE Sisters, and co-sponsored awareness programs with chapters open to all students.
Annually, SAPEC recognizes one chapter from each Sorority and Fraternity Life as a Partner in Prevention. These chapters have gone above and beyond in their efforts to reduce and prevent violence in their communities.
